2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Gran Turismo Concept

Posted on by  

Gran Turismo 6 will be unveiled on November 28th, 2013 — just in time to celebrate the game’s 15th anniversary. In order to celebrate the event, Chevrolet will present a special-edition Stingray concept at the 2013 SEMA Show , which kicks off tomorrow.

The model was inspired by the version used in GT6, and it features a custom exterior paint scheme combined with yellow-tinted headlamps for a wild look. The Corvette Stingray Gran Turismo concept looks a little bit sportier than the standard Stingray, thanks to its carbon-fiber rear wing, a custom carbon-fiber hood and extractor design, carbon-fiber rockers, and a carbon-fiber front splitter.

Chevrolet also tossed in a custom grille, a racing-style front tow hook for those untimely spin outs into the grass and custom exhaust tips.

For the interior, Chevy upgraded the new Corvette Stingray Gran Turismo Concept with competition sport seats combined with racing harnesses for the driver and passenger. There is also a custom, flat-bottom steering wheel, and leather-wrapped safety belt bar and rear braces.
